Tapjoy’s Ben Chen chats to Gamasutra about four common ways app publishers are leaving money on the table – and how to avoid them.

As any successful freemium game developer can tell you, monetization is an ever-evolving task. There’s always new promotions to run, additional in-game items to merchandise, and innovative ways to optimize your ad strategy.

But every freemium game developer will also tell you that they live in constant fear of leaving money on the table.
